1 slightly beaten egg
1/4 c. finely crushed nacho-flavored or plain tortilla chips
3 Tbsp. finely chopped green sweet pepper
3/4 tsp. chili powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. black pepper
1 lb. uncooked ground chicken (we used ground turkey)
2 oz. Monterey Jack cheese with jalapeno peppers, sliced
4 kaiser rolls or hamburger buns, split and toasted
1 avocado, halved, seeded, peeled, and sliced
4 lettuce leaves
1/4 c. bottled salsa
- In a medium bowl combine egg, tortilla chips, sweet pepper, chili powder, salt, and black pepper. Add chicken; mix well. (Mixture will be wet.) Shape chicken mixture into four 3/4-inch-thick round patties.
- Place patties on the unheated rack of a broiler pan. Broil 4 inches from heat for 14 to 18 minutes or until no longer pink and an instant-read thermometer registers 165 degrees Fahrenheit, turning once halfway through broiling time. Top burgers with cheese. Broil for 1 minutes more or until cheese melts.
- Serve burgers on toasted rolls; top with avocado, lettuce, and salsa.
